Save up for that new Nexus by selling your old phone to Karma Recycling

And as a bonus, win real-life karma for being an eco-friendly geek

Remember the phone you were using last year? And the year before that? Chances are they’re lying unloved and forgotten in a drawer somewhere. So it does make sense to sell ‘em off while the ol’ silicon still works, and then use that cash to buy that fancy new gadget you’ve been eyeing for a while. 

It might come as a shock to you, but you’ve been hoarding gold at home. Er, before you start tearing the sofa apart in a frantic search for Red Rackham’s treasure, listen to us. We’re referring to all those old phones and tablets that you fell out of love with. Those poor, slow things, no longer receiving OS updates, without high-res screens  to hold your interest. Gathering dust in a dark corner, waiting to be put out of their misery. We’re not kidding about this. A back-of-the-envelope calculation done by the more numerically capable members of our staff has us believe you might just be able to finance next year’s flagship simply by selling off all those old gadgets you no longer use. Or at the least, you’ll probably make enough money for a nice night on the town.


So why don’t you? Not only do you get cold, hard cash (always a good thing), but you also get the warm, fuzzy feeling of doing something for the environment by recycling. So if you’re on board with this, head over to Karma Recycling and get started. All you gotta do is pick the model of your old phone, describe its condition, hand the phone over to the courier chaps, and then, of course, pick out what you want to buy with the cash that’ll soon be deposited into your account.
